Filled with gold, elegant drapes and theatre memorabilia, Sarastro is an iconic restaurant for lovers of opera and London's West End. Housed in a Grade-II listed building, the menu spans the Mediterranean, and on selected evenings there are live music events ranging from Motown to a string quartet.

From Italian classics to exotic Turkish delicacies, the Sarastro menu captures the very best of the Mediterranean. To start, there are mezze options that are perfect to share, and mini lamb shish that are wonderfully juicy. Fresh seafood includes Dover sole with new potatoes and asparagus, and the veal chop with garlic confit and port jus is a hugely popular choice. There are sumptuous vegetarian options also featured, and gourmet salads for those wanting a lighter meal.

There are all kinds of sweet treats to finish with at Sarastro in Covent Garden. A signature crème brûlée comes infused with Turkish raki, and the wine list includes fine vintages from the old and new worlds.

An iconic restaurant in London that is perfect for theatre goers, Sarastro sits moments from famed theatres and entertainment attractions of the area. Covent Garden Tube Station is just a 5-minute walk away.

    great atmosphere and crazy decor. Food is good but not excellent, so think relaxed format and reasonable value. Entertainment was the 70 and 80 eve, so think Carol King and the Carpenters. In short, everyone was singing along and having good fun.

    First time and found the staff very friendly and attentive. The decor was very quirky and never been in a restaurant like it! Then food was good and presented very well. Only disappointment was not being able to be seated on the balcony.

    The atmosphere and ambience never fail to impress on first arriving at the restaurant. The staff are very attentive, friendly and efficient. The food was very tasty and we had the Tenor menu for pre theatre diners. Great value and had a large glass of wine to go with it. Hummus was delicious, the salmon beautifully cooked with tasty roasted veg and the Coffee cake with mascarpone was very similar to Tiramisu. Excellent. Also very well situated for going to the theatre.
